Attraction Information

Llyn Llech Owain Country Park is a 158-acre expanse of woods and lakeland near Cross Hands with nature trails, an adventure area including a cool wooden adventure playground, separate toddler playground with smaller features, family friendly and welcoming cafe and a resourceful visitor centre.

There are specially constructed accessible paths allowing you to explore the bog and around the lake. A forest track provides a longer hike or bike ride around the country park and there's a rough mountain bike trail for the more adventurous cyclists amongst you!

It's a point of interest that kids may like to know that legend has it that historic serviceman Owain Lawgoch (known as Owain The Red Hand in the the Hundred Years' War) was entrusted to look after Mynydd Mawr, a well on the mountain.

Every day, after withdrawing enough water for he and his horse, Owain was always very careful to replace the stone slab which held back the water. However on one occasion he somehow completely forgot to do that and an absolute torrent of water poured down the side of the mountain! The resultant lake was hence named Llyn Lech Owain, meaning 'the lake of Owain's slab'! Puts that spilt fruit juice from breakfast time into perspective doesn't it?!
